Call for Papers: SM 317 - Mobile Multimedia Communications: Theory, Technology and Progress (MOBIMEDIA 2021)


As mobile multimedia systems, services, and applications increasingly become a part of daily life, researchers are exploring a new generation wireless communication networks on many fronts. New theories and technologies are producing diverse mobile multimedia applications, including services for surveillance, entertainment and social media, voice and video, medical imaging, business transactions, and various multimedia services based on the Internet of Things. At the same time, traditional multimedia communications and processing schemes can’t securely and effectively compress, encode, transmit, process, synchronize, store, and mine all of the multimedia information. Therefore, there’s a growing demand for developing and designing theories, technologies, and applications for secure mobile multimedia communications.

This special issue selects excellent papers from the 14th EAI International Conference on Mobile Multimedia Communications (EAI MOBIMEDIA 2021). The issue will provide a compelling forum for researchers and practitioners to present their recent results.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

- Architectures for mobile multimedia

- Security and privacy in mobile multimedia

- Compressing and coding mobile multimedia data

- Parallel and distributed computing for mobile multimedia

- Novel and interesting applications in mobile multimedia

- Data aggregation and communication in IIoT

- Differential privacy and its application
